DAV of Minnesota supports and advocates for Minnesota Veterans disabled in the defense of our nation
Minnesota Veterans answered when their state and nation called on them and it’s our turn to be there for them. Our statewide membership network of 32 chapters is comprised exclusively of disabled Minnesota veterans. From transporting veterans to medical appointments to collecting clothing donations to rallying at the Capitol for Veteran legislation, our members and supporters are working to ensure Veterans prosper long after they hang up the uniform.
We are dedicated to one clear mission: to better the lives of Minnesota’s disabled Veterans and their families.
Disabled American Veterans – DAV of Minnesota – is dedicated to a single purpose: keeping our promise to America’s Veterans. We accomplish this by ensuring that Veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them, fighting for the legislative interests of America’s injured heroes in both Washington and St. Paul, providing employment resources to Veterans and their families, and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of Veterans transitioning back to civilian life.

One of the reasons that I stay involved in DAV is because I feel they are so inclusive of younger Veterans and women Veterans, and I feel welcome.
I am passionate about DAV of Minnesota Outdoor Programs. Fishing and hunting builds camaraderie: the fish might not be biting, but the conversation is always good!
